- 5. D EPED C O PY 355 I. INTRODUCTION Look at the pictures shown below. Do you recognize them? Did you take the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) when you were in Grade 9? If so, what was your score? Did you know your rank? Have you thought of comparing your academic performance with that of your classmates? Have you wondered what score you need for each subject area to qualify for honors? Whenever your teacher asks your class to form a line according to your height, what is your position in relation to your classmates? Have you asked yourself why a certain examinee in any national examination gets higher rank than the other examinees? Some state colleges and universities are offering scholarship programs for graduating students who belong to the upper 5%, 10%, or even 25%. What does this mean to you? All rights reserved.

- 6. D EPED C O PY 356 In this module, you will study about the measures of position. Remember to look for the answers to the following questions: 1. How would I know my position given the academic rank? 2. What are the ways to determine the measure of position in a set of data? The basic purpose of all the measures of central tendency discussed so far during your Grade 7 and Grade 8 classes was to gain more knowledge and deeper understanding about the characteristics of a data set. Another method to analyze a data set is by arranging all the observations in either ascending or descending order of their magnitude. Then, this ordered set is divided into two equal parts by applying the concept of median. However, to have more knowledge about the data set, we may divide it into more parts of equal sizes. The measures of central tendency which are used for dividing the data into several equal parts are called partition values. We shall discuss data analysis by dividing it into four, ten, and hundred parts of equal sizes and the corresponding partition values are called quartiles, deciles, and percentiles. All these values can be determined in the same way as the median. The only difference is in their location. Quantiles can be applied when: 1. dealing with large amount of data, which includes the timely results for standardized tests in schools, etc. 2. trying to discover the smallest as well as the largest values in a given distribution. 3. examining financial fields for academic as well as statistical studies. Quantiles are very useful because they help the government to find how the income in a country is distributed, how much of the total income is earned by low wage earning groups and by high wage earning groups. (If both groups earn the same proportion of the income, then there is income equality.) All rights reserved.

- 16. D EPED C O PY 366 Let us take a closer look at the quartiles. The Quartile for Ungrouped Data The quartiles are the score points which divide a distribution into four equal parts. Twenty-five percent (25%) of the distribution are below the first quartile, fifty percent (50%) are below the second quartile, and seventy-five percent (75%) are below the third quartile. 1 Q is called the lower quartile and 3 Q is the upper quartile. 1 Q < 2 Q < 3 Q , where 2 Q is nothing but the median. The difference between 3 Q and 1 Q is the interquartile range. Since the second quartile is equal to the median, the steps in the computation of median by identifying the median class is the same as the steps in identifying the Q1 class and the Q3 class. a. 25% of the data has a value ≤ Q1 b. 50% of the data has a value ≤ X or Q2 c. 75% of the data has a value ≤ Q3 Example 1. The owner of a coffee shop recorded the number of customers who came into his café each hour in a day. The results were 14, 10, 12, 9, 17, 5, 8, 9, 14, 10, and 11. Find the lower quartile and upper quartile of the data. Solution: In ascending order, the data are 5, 8, 9, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12, 14, 14, 17 The least value in the data is 5 and the greatest value in the data is 17. The middle value in the data is 10. The lower quartile is the value that is between the middle value and the least value in the data set. So, the lower quartile is 9. The upper quartile is the value that is between the middle value and the greatest value in the data set. So, the upper quartile is 14. Q1 Q2 Q3 All rights reserved.

Component Quantity hard disk 290 monitors 370 keyboards 260 mouse 180 speakers 430 Solution: In increasing order, the data are 180, 260, 290, 370, 430. The least value of the data is 180 and the greatest value of the data is 430. The middle value of the data is 290. The lower quartile is the value that is between the least value and the middle value. So, the lower quartile is 260. The upper quartile is the value that is between the greatest value and the middle value. So, the upper quartile is 370. The average of the lower quartile and the higher quartile is equal to 315. Example 3. The lower quartile of a data set is the 8th data value. How many data values are there in the data set? Solution: The lower quartile is the median data value of the lower half of the data set. So, there are 7 data values before and after the lower quartile. So, the number of data values in the lower half is equal to 7+7+1. The number of values in the data set is equal to lower half + upper half + 1. The number of values in the lower and upper halves are equal. Formula: 15+15+1=31 So, the data set contains 31 data values. All rights reserved.

- 18. D EPED C O PY 368 Another solution: 1 4 (n + 1) = 8 n + 1 = 32 n = 31 Example 4. Mendenhall and Sincich Method. Using Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences, define a different method of finding quartile values. To apply their method on a data set with n elements, first calculate: Lower Quartile (L) = Position of 1 1 1 4 Q n and round to the nearest integer. If L falls halfway between two integers, round up. The Lth element is the lower quartile value (Q1). Next calculate: Upper Quartile (U) = Position of 3 3 1 4 Q n and round to the nearest integer. If U falls halfway between two integers, round down. The Uth element is the upper quartile value (Q3). So for our example data set: {1, 3 , 7, 7, 16 , 21, 27, 30 , 31} and n = 9. To find Q1, locate its position using the formula 1 1 4 n and round off to the nearest integer. Position of 1 1 1 4 Q n 1 4 (9 + 1) 1 4 (10) 2.5 All rights reserved.

- 19. D EPED C O PY 369 The computed value 2.5 becomes 3 after rounding up. The lower quartile value (Q1) is the 3rd data element, so Q1 = 7. Similarly: Position of 3 3 1 4 Q n 3 9 1 4 3 10 4 = 7.5 The computed value 7.5 becomes 7 after rounding down. The upper quartile value (Q3) is the 7th data element, so Q3 = 27. Using this method, the upper quartile (Q3) and lower quartile (Q1) values are always two of the data elements. Find the first quartile (Q1), second quartile (Q2), and the third quartile (Q3), given the scores of 10 students in their Mathematics activity using Mendenhall and Sincich Method. 4 9 7 14 10 8 12 15 6 11 Example 5.

- 20. D EPED C O PY 370 b. Second, locate the position of the score in the distribution. Position of 1 1 1 4 Q n 1 9 1 4 1 10 4 = 2.5 Since the result is a decimal number, interpolation is needed. c. Third, interpolate the value to obtain the 1st quartile. Steps of Interpolation Step 1: Subtract the 2nd data from the 3rd data. 7 – 3 = 4 Step 2: Multiply the result by the decimal part obtained in the second step (Position of Q1). 4(0.5) = 2 Step 3: Add the result in step 2, to the 2nd or smaller number. 3 + 2 = 5 Therefore, the value of Q1 = 5. Solution: a. First, arrange the scores in ascending order. 1 3 7 7 16 21 27 30 31 b. Second, locate the position of the score in the distribution. Position of 3 3 1 4 Q n 3 9 1 4 3 10 4 = 7.5 Since the result is a decimal number, interpolation is needed. All rights reserved.

Steps of Interpolation Step 1: Subtract the 7th data from the 8th data. 30 - 27 = 3 Step 2: Multiply the result by the decimal part obtained in the third step (Position of Q3). 3(0.5) = 1.5 Step 3: Add the result in step 2, (1.5), to the 7th or smaller number. 27 + 1.5 = 28.5 Therefore, the value of Q3 = 28.5 Note: As we can see, these methods sometimes (but not always) produce the same results.

They are computed in the same way that the quartiles are calculated. Example 6. Find the 3rd decile or D3 of the following test scores of a random sample of ten students: 35 , 42 , 40 , 28 , 15 , 23 , 33 , 20 , 18 and 28. Solution: First, arrange the scores in ascending order. 15 18 20 23 28 28 33 35 40 42 Steps to find decile value on a data with n elements: To find its D3 position, use the formula 3 1 10 n and round off to the nearest integer. Position of 3 3 10 1 10 D 3 11 10 33 10 = 3.3 ≈ 3 D3 is the 3rd element. Therefore, D3 = 20. D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7 D8 D9 All rights reserved.

- 26. D EPED C O PY 376 The Percentile for Ungrouped Data The percentiles are the ninety-nine score points which divide a distribution into one hundred equal parts, so that each part represents the data set. It is used to characterize values according to the percentage below them. For example, the first percentile (P1) separates the lowest 1% from the other 99%, the second percentile (P2) separates the lowest 2% from the other 98%, and so on. The percentiles determine the value for 1%, 2%,…, and 99% of the data. P30 or 30th percentile of the data means 30% of the data have values less than or equal to P30. The 1st decile is the 10th percentile (P10). It means 10% of the data is less than or equal to the value of P10 or D1, and so on. Example 8 Find the 30th percentile or P30 of the following test scores of a random sample of ten students: 35, 42, 40, 28, 15, 23, 33, 20, 18, and 28. Solution: Arrange the scores from the lowest to the highest. 15 18 20 23 28 28 33 35 40 42 Q1 Q2 Q3 P25 P50 P75 P10 P20 P30 P40 P50 P60 P70 P80 P90 D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7 D8 D9 All rights reserved.

To help you understand the next topic, notes with illustrative examples are provided. The Quartile for Grouped Data Recall that quartiles divide the distribution into four equal parts. The steps in computing the median are similar to that of Q1 and Q3. In finding the median, we first need to determine the median class. In the same manner, the Q1 and the Q3 class must be determined first before computing for the value of Q1 and Q3. The Q1 class is the class interval where the th 4 N score is contained, while the class interval that contains the 3 th 4 N score is the Q3 class. In computing the quartiles of grouped data, the following formula is used: 4 b k Qk kN cf Q LB i f where: LB = lower boundary of the Qk class N = total frequency = cumulative frequency of the class before the Qk class = frequency of the Qk class i = size of class interval k = nth quartile, where n = 1, 2, and 3 b cf All rights reserved.

Percentile Rank Percentile ranks are particularly useful in relating individual scores to their positions in the entire group. A percentile rank is typically defined as the proportion of scores in a distribution that a specific score is greater than or equal to. For instance, if you received a score of 95 on a mathematics test and this score was greater than or equal to the scores of 88% of the students taking the test, then your percentile rank would be 88. An example is the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) given to Grade 9 students. The scores of students are represented by their percentile ranks. 100 P PR P P LB f P cf N i where: PR = percentile rank, the answer will be a percentage P cf = cumulative frequency of all the values below the critical value P = raw score or value for which one wants to find a percentile rank LB = lower boundary of the kth percentile class N = total frequency i = size of the class interval 32 32 32 100 b P N cf P LB i f 32 16 6 25.5 5 12 P 32 29.67P P32 class: 32 100 N = 32 50 100 = 1600 100 = 16 This means we need to find the class interval where the 16th score is contained. Note that the 7th-18th scores belong to the class interval: 26-30. So, the 16th score is also within the class interval. The P32 class is class interval 26-30. All rights reserved.

Concepts are integrated into the writer’s own insights. The writer provides concluding remarks that show analysis and synthesis of ideas. The paper demonstrated that the student, for the most part, understands and has applied concepts learned in the course. Some of the conclusions, however, are not supported in the body of the paper. The paper demonstrated that the student, to a certain extent, understands and has applied concepts learned in the course. The paper did not demonstrate that the student has fully understood and applied concepts learned in the course. TOPIC FOCUS The topic is focused narrowly enough for the scope of this assignment. The research study provides direction for the paper, either by statement of a position or hypothesis. The topic is focused but lacks direction. The paper is about a specific topic but the writer has not established a position. The topic is too broad for the scope of this assignment. The topic is not clearly defined.

D EPED C O PY 402 SUMMARY/SYNTHESIS/GENERALIZATION In this lesson, you were able to illustrate measures of position for grouped data: quartiles, deciles, and percentiles, calculate a specified measure of position (e.g., 90th percentile) of a set of data, interpret measures of position, and solve problems involving measures of position. More importantly, you were given the chance to formulate and solve real-life problems, and demonstrate your understanding of the lesson by doing some practical tasks. You have learned the following: Quartile for Grouped Data 4 b k Qk kN cf Q LB i f Decile for Grouped Data 10 k b k D kN cf D LB i f Percentile for Grouped Data 100 k b k P kN cf P LB i f Percentile Rank 100 P PR P P LB f P cf N i All rights reserved.

- 53. D EPED C O PY 403 GLOSSARY OF TERMS Deciles - the nine score points which divide a distribution into ten equal parts. These deciles are denoted as D1, D2, D3,… D9. Percentiles - the ninety-nine score points which divide a distribution into one hundred equal parts so that each part represents 1 100 of the data set. They are used to characterize values according to the percentage below them. Quantiles - measures of positions that divide a distribution into four, ten, and hundred equal parts. Such measures of positions are quartiles, deciles, and percentiles. Quartiles - the score points which divide a distribution into four equal parts. Twenty-five percent (25%) of the distribution fall below the first quartile, fifty percent (50%) fall below the second quartile, and seventy-five percent (75%) fall below the third quartile.
